Spring in Bloom! | Arnold Arboretum Family Photo Session

Spring in Bloom! | Arnold Arboretum Family Photo Session

Having lived in Roslindale, Massachusetts for almost a decade, I am very familiar with the number one outdoor destination in the area — the Arnold Arboretum.  Occupying 281 acres, there is just nothing that compares to the vast beauty and diversity of trees, shrubs, and plants you can find here.  It is a fantastic place for a walk or hike any time of year, but my very favorite time to come is in the springtime!  Everywhere you turn there are flowers blooming and it seems like every week brings something new to see.  I love to come with my own family for hikes, but it also happens to make a quintessential backdrop for photos.  I am so excited to highlight my favorite images from this gorgeous Arnold Arboretum family photo session!

This session felt a little like I that iconic scene from the Sound of Music ( minus the mountains in the distance!) at the arboretum on this particular afternoon.  The buttercups were definitely hitting their peak! #lucky.  I first met this family at their son’s newborn session 6 months earlier (one of my favorites of all time, btw)  What a treat to see how much their baby boy has grown since then!  Sitting up, smiling, laughing and trying to eat all the flowers.  ha!

{ Spring will be here before we know it.  I know you want to roll around in the buttercups with your family, too.  Please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to chat about grabbing a spot on my calendar in May! }

I was so excited when I found out I would be able to take some of my clients to a local apple orchard this spring, while all of the blossoms were in full bloom!  I knew I wanted to take this family in particular because they are always up for anything and there are acres upon acres to run and explore–perfect for a family with two young energetic boys!

The mama in this family and I go way back. In fact, we actually met many years ago when she was (more…)

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed this family… the last time, sweet little George had just been born!! Four and a half years later and look how big he’s gotten!!  I met up with this fun crew at the Arnold Arboretum in JP for a late day family session.  The light and weather were perfect and these boys showed no shortage of personality.  I met this mama just over ten years ago when we were in a Baby & Me class together and I’m so thrilled we have been able to keep in touch and that I’ve been able to photograph her family several times over the last decade!

One of the things I love about my job is that I’m sometimes connected with a family in one capacity and then given the opportunity to photograph some other aspect of their lives. In this case, my work taking school portraits introduced me to this gorgeous family of five. We chose the Arnold Arboretum, where they frequently go for walks together, as the backdrop for their family session.

From the moment I met them, I was struck by the energy and happiness that radiates from this family. I couldn’t help but be swept up in their joy—it was contagious.

It was a hot and sunny evening in June when I met up with this family of four at the Arnold Arboretum in Roslindale.  The last time I saw them was a full year ago at their home, just after second baby was born.  It was so much fun to see them again and to see how much their girls have grown!

I’ll just sum it up by saying: sessions like this make me giddy.  These images are what happens when (more…)
